I fell awake this morning
And thought I saw the sun
On it's way down
And this evening when the sky got bright
I realized that I'd been turned around

So, Lord I've come, again
To ask you what it is
And where in His eyes
And if my hands weren't worthy, Lord
I never could touch your shining face, again

I touched it as a child
I could see it for my brother
And I saw Him smiling gentle
Your shining face upon the flowers

And I recalled the times
When I could come to you
With open heart and mind
Knowing that the best, dear Lord
You'd lead me through the valley one more time

So, now I stand before you, Lord
To pray that you will wash again my spirit
And if you'll cleanse my dirty hands
I'd love to touch your shining face, again

For I touched it as a child
I could feel it for my brother
And I saw His smiling truth through
Your shining face among the clouds
(Face among the clouds)

Yes, we touched it as a child
(Yes we touched it as a child)
We could feel it for each other
(We could feel it for each other)
And we saw a smiling brother
(And we saw Him smiling brother)
His shining face among the clouds.
